    Just bought the new Argon jacket from the Polo line. Very similar to the bedale but slimmer fit and quilted lining rather than tradition tartan lining. I rewaxed it the day I bought it because I dont like how dry the sylkoil finish feels to me. Due to that, the jacket looks closer to black than navy. This is a navy jacket with a dark chocolate brown moleskin collar. The inside of the collar, which touches your neck, is made of corduroy. For your reference, this jacket is a size small. I have a 35" chest and 34" arms. This jacket fits me MUCH better than the bedale or beaufort simply because it is cut slimmer and has much longer arms.

    Looks good. Interesting color and slim enough to be worn with just a t-shirt.

    I'm pretty much the same size as you. I don't know my actual chest size but i wear a 40R jacket. I have an ashby in medium and the fit is pretty much spot on. You'll need to layer in those temps, and/or possibly get a liner

    I'm a 40R also. Does the Bedale fit snug? I'm looking to buy one for somewhat cold climate. I'll maybe wear with a light sweater or liner. Should I get a 38 or 40? I don't have anywhere close to try one on. Thanks.

    A little bit of googling, or actually reading this thread would tell you to avoid those websites like the plague.

    Just received the pile zip-in liner from Orvis, for my Bedale. Goodness this thing is warm.

    No, the Bedale does not fit snug. If you plan on making it your cold-weather coat, it's imperative that you buy the pile liner.

    thinking about replacing my classic olive Bedale with a navy Ashby or a SL Bedale for a slimmer fit.

    anyone know if the Ashby or SL Bedale can add liners in it?

    I'd suggest getting the new Argon. I posted a photo of me wearing mine a few posts back. It is both warmer and slimmer than the bedale.

    Hi everybody, I wonder if you can help me. I'm thinking about getting a Barbour (it would be my first one!) and I'm considering the Bedale, the Beaufort and even the Border. I would be using it mainly for walking my dogs in the woods and countryside and so on, so I don't need anything snug, I want something comfortable. I'm a girl, I'm 5'4", my weight is 123,42 lb (gosh, I feel like a Miss World contestant! :-D) and my chest size is 35"; I'm saying this because I'm browsing through ebay (I find there are quite a few items in pretty good shape) and I wouldn't mind getting a man's jacket, if it fits. So here's the question: considering my measurements, do you think I could fit the smaller men' sizes or would I drown in them? Thanks for your help!

    I was looking at this Bedale, the seller is italian and he says the jacket fits an italian size 42-44 (I think in American sizes this would be size 8-10). Do you think it's true? This is a picture of the label, it says it's a C42/107cm

    Did you find this in-store? If so, where pray-tell? Looks like a very fine jacket sir, and I can't find it on the US website...

    That's going to be way too big on you. I'm a 38" chest and swim in my 38 Gamefair. Look at children's listings. Those are usually cheaper and you can probably find on that fits by referencing size charts online.

    I'd start with a 36 and size down accordingly. The 42 would be way too big on you.

    Yes, I found this originally at the Georgetown store but found out that both NYC stores have it also. I ordered it online from Countryattire though because it saved me about $100. This jacket is also made in Olive for a more classic look. Great jacket though.
